Weekend Football Accumulator Tip for Saturday By Marc McRobert

Saturday’s Accumulator Tip

Preston to beat Bradford
Both these two have faltered recently but I fully expect Preston to get back to winning ways. North End had a confidence boosting victory in the FA Cup last week and will use that to kick start their promotion campaign. With on fire marksman Joe Garner already in double figures this term they should have enough to beat The struggling Bantams. Bradford have only a single victory in their last 8 league games and will do very well to come away from this one with anything.

Sheffield United to beat Doncaster.
With Sheffield United in the headlines for different reasons this week, they will be happy to get back onto the pitch. The anti post League One favourites will be wanting to put a run together soon so that they can have a say in the automatic promotion race and this could be the perfect day to start that. Doncaster have struggled to adapt to life back in League One and have won just once at home all season.

Shrewsbury to beat Mansfield
Shrewsbury are flying high at the moment after a five match winning run in League 2 and currently occupy an automatic promotion spot. They look a good bet to notch another victory in this one against lowly Mansfield. The Stags haven't won in their last six and have scored just three goals in that time. The lack of potency up front is starting to drag Mansfield towards the drop zone and that is set to continue against one of the league favourites for the title.

Southend to beat Hartlepool
Southend could be a real threat in the division if they could find some consistency. Phil Brown has put together a strong squad and a play-off position will be the minimum of their ambitions this term. Hartlepool sit bottom of the table and have only a single league victory in eleven and their lack of goals (just 12 all
season) must be a real concern for the fans. This is a great chance for The Seasiders to put last weeks FA Cup defeat behind them and to concentrate on promotion.

Luton to beat Tranmere
Since relegation last season Tranmere have found it hard to get going this campaign and at present are second from bottom in The League Two standings. They haven't won a league match since August and back to back relegations is becoming a real possibility. Luton are heading in the other direction having won seven out of their last eight. The Hatters
are full of confidence and I can't see them dropping any points here.

Match Result and Both Teams to Score Betting Tip

There may be an international break but still plenty of Football League and Non-League action this Saturday and we have a free accumulator betting tip.

Match Result and Both Teams to Score Betting Tip

Preston to Beat Bradford and Both Teams to Score 5/2:
Monday’s FA Cup success turned the corner after back to back defeats for North End and they need to return to winning ways in the league if they are to keep hold of an automatic promotion spot. Both of those recent defeats did come away from home and Preston have won 5 on the spin at home with both sides scoring in 3 of their last four. Bradford are without a win in their last 5 but both teams have scored in 4 of them matches, home win but goals should fly for our next accumulator selection.

Shrewsbury to Beat Mansfield and Both Teams to Score 14/5:
5 straight league wins means Shrewsbury are putting serious pressure on the top of League 2. Combine this with the fact they are unbeaten at home in the league this season they are a good shout here. Despite their good form they’ve kept just 2 clean sheets in seven matches and both teams have scored in 2 of their last 3 at home. Mansfield are without a win in their last 7 but they have drawn 3 of them. No wins in 5 is poor away form but both teams have scored in 3 of them, Shrewsbury are the better side here but their defence isn’t the securest.

Eastleigh to Beat Lincoln and Both Teams to Score 23/10:
You may have a feeling of de ja vu about this pick after it was also a selection last week as the sides met in the FA Cup. Eastleigh won 2-1 that day and there’s no reason to expect anything else here. Eastleigh are unbeaten in their last 6 with both teams scoring in 5 of them games and they have won 4 in a row at home with both teams scoring in each of them
games. Both teams have scored in Lincoln’s last 6 away and they haven’t won in that time. Another Eastleigh win looks good here.

Plymouth v Portsmouth Betting Tips and Predictions By Jack Critchley

The FA Cup provided a temporary break from the exertions of the league, but it’s back to the bread and butter of League Two as Plymouth take on Portsmouth in the televised game on Saturday lunchtime.

Plymouth sent AFC Fylde packing following a long journey to Home Park with a solid and professional 2-0 victory whilst Portsmouth laboured to a 2-2 draw with Aldershot from the division below and will have to have a replay to make it into round 2. Plymouth have been in tremendous form in recent weeks, whilst Pompey have started picking up points
and have moved into 9th place. They are particularly effective on their home patch, but struggle on the road.

The Pilgrims haven’t lost on home soil since high flying Wycombe visited Home Park on the 16th September and recorded a 1-0 win. They’ve been consistent and have conceded few goals. They also picked up a creditable 1-1 draw at Burton on their last league outing. They may be only 3 places higher than their
opposition, but I am predicting home advantage will be a huge factor and they should be able to see off their South Coast rivals. Paul Robinson is suspended for Portsmouth, a small disruption in defence won't do anything to help Portsmouth’s cause.

Plymouth to win at 6/5 is my first betting
tip for Plymouth v Portsmouth on Saturday afternoon. Plymouth have only conceded twice at home this season in the league, once to Stevenage and once at the aforementioned match against Wycombe. This is a superb record and the defensive stability of Peter
Hartley and Curtis Nelson as well as Carl McHugh & Anthony O’Connor has paid off with few concessions this season.

Portsmouth on the other hand have only
scored 3 times away from home in the League and may struggle to provide the firepower to infiltrate the watertight back line. They have improved significantly offensively, but I think this game will be tight and goals will be scarce.

Our next Plymouth v Portsmouth prediction is for under 2.5 goals to be the scores at 4/6. Reuben Reid didn’t find the net against AFC Fylde, but he is still Plymouth’s top scorer by a distance and as penalty taker, he is a decent bet to be first goalscorer in this game. The former Yeovil man is hot property at this level and has chipped in with several important
goals this season. He has scored 9 goals in all competitions and assisted by Marvin Morgan, who got on the score sheet at the weekend, he is a good bet to find the net early on in the match. Reuben Reid to score first goal 9/2 is our final football betting tip this weekend.

Vestsjaelland vs Viborg BK betting tips 21 Mar by NikolajMadsen

Vestsjaelland vs Viborg BK betting tips 21 Mar by NikolajMadsen:

So, my last prediction did not go as planned. After Randers deservedly took the lead they unfortunately had to make two substitutions in their defensive line due to injuries which really shattered their defensive line.

Moving on to Friday a new clash in the bottom of the Danish Superliga are to be played when FC Vestsjaelland are welcoming Viborg FF. There are a lot at stake for both teams as FC Vestsjaelland finds themselves three points above the drop-zone while Viborg FF is already in it.

FC Vestsjaelland is coming from a very surprising away win against FC Nordsjaelland on 1-2. Not many teams manage to steal all three points when visiting FC Nordsjaelland, which I think will give FC Vestsjaelland a big boost before more vital points, is at stake against Viborg FF. FC Vestsjaelland has lately been characterized by their dominance in the air, which is also the main factor behind several goals in the previous matches.

On both sides they have competent wing-backs, in Peter Nymann/Oliver Lund and Michael Lumb, who are able to deliver dangerous crosses into the box. Oliver Lund is, however, ill at the moment but should be ready for Friday. Former Nigerian international, Edward Ofere, signed this winter, have already proved to be a great addition to the attacking line and have already scored two goals in his first four appearances. The defence of FC Vestsjaelland is beginning to look better with Jean Bozga who, despite making a defensive mistake against FC Nordsjaelland, proves as a great asset in the air duels along with his partner, Lasse Nielsen, who earned a spot in The Superliga Team of the Week, according to the Danish sports paper, Tipsbladet. The only player out for Vestsjaelland is striker, Joel Tshibamba, as he has been for one and a half month.

Viborg FF, on the other side, comes from a 1-1 draw in Odense where they despite going behind ended up snatching a point from a goal by the Superliga topscorer with 15 goals this season, Thomas Dalgaard. Thomas Dalgaard is really a one-man army and has won many points for Viborg FF and in my opinion the main reason that the club is not certain for one of the relegation spots already. Though they have some wing-players of decent quality in Alexandar Stankov, Kevin Mensah, Lucas Jensen and David Boysen, I consider many of their players more fit for the Danish 1st Division. Out with injuries for Viborg FF are striker, Danilo Arrieta and the two defenders Fredrik Stoor and Jonas Thorsen.

I think this match will involve a lot of fighting which will cause a lot of free kicks that can lead to dangerous set-pieces which I think will turn out to be an advantage for FC Vestsjaelland. I think it will be a close encounter and I am not denying that Viborg FF could score with Thomas Dalgaard up front, but I think that FC Vestsjaelland, with a boosted morale and superior air-assets, will prevail here.

Tours vs CA Bastia betting tips 21 Mar by Jim_p3

Tours vs CA Bastia betting tips 21 Mar by Jim_p3:

Tours are coming from the last defeat against Brest 2:0, even though they had chances to score but in the end they lost.They conceded the first goal from penalty and when the second goal was scored they couldn't do more.Currently in the 8th position they have a total of 42 points.In home games Tours are very strong.They've lost only 1 time from a total of past 15 matches (including two Cup games).They score lot's of goals and are very disciplined in defense, in home games,with a goal difference of 29:16.Tours lost only 1 match at home this season.Bastia are in the last place with 17 points.They managed to win the last match against Troyes with a minimal result of 1:0, but was enough to take 3 points that are very important to them,even though escaping from relegation zone is impossible.This season they only won 3 times in 28 weeks.In away matches they are terrible having lost 4 of the last 5 matches.The match between them in the first half of the season ended in a victory for Tours 1:2, and probably it will repeat again.

Tours are going to miss many defense players.Samuel Bouhours(groin),Jerome Guihoata(calf),Fousseni Diawara(suspension) and Nicolas Seguin(recovery).

Bastia will be without Romain Pastorelli and Jean-Jacques Mandrichi ,who are injured.Good news is that Moussa Traore is back with the team after the knee injury.

Tours are favorites for the match, but looking at the injured defense and Bastia needing the points more then ever, we can see a surprise draw.I think the best pick for this match is with goals so I choose over 2.5.

Lorient vs PSG betting tips 21 Mar by Kamlesh

Lorient vs PSG betting tips 21 Mar by Kamlesh:

Lorient have severely dropped form. In fact, in their last 8 matches, they have won only once, drew thrice and lost four times. Nevertheless, they have a good home record, having lost only twice this season. But their defence is not good at the moment as in their last 8 matches, they have conceded at least 1 goal in 7 of them. They have even more problems with key players missing. Defender Guerreiro (26/0), defender Gassama (suspended 16/0), midfielder Barthelme (13/1) and forward Sunu (13/0) are expected to be out while midfielder Coutadeur (10/1) and midfielder Diallo (23/3) are very doubtful.

PSG, on the other hand, are in great form at the moment. They are top of the league and they have won 7 consecutive matches in all competitions with 5 clean sheets, conceding only 3 goals while scoring 20 goals. They are also undefeated in their last 10 away matches with 2 draws and 8 wins. Possessing the best attack and best defence in the league, they have scored at least 2 goals in 19 of their last 22 matches in the league. Only defender Van der Wiel (21/0) is doubtful. Otherwise, they can count on all their best players for this game.

The Lorient coach Gourcuff often criticizes the PSG coach Laurent Blanc and the PSG striker Ibrahimovic (28/25), stating that he does not find them worth all the praise. As such, PSG will be fully motivated to punish Lorient in this match by inflicting another defeat on them to show their supremacy over them. Besides, Lorient have some important players missing which will make it even harder for them to stop a PSG in great form at the moment from scoring and winning.

Last 2 encounters between these teams ended as follows:

PSG 4 - 0 Lorient

Lorient 1 - 3 PSG (red card)

PSG Asian Handicap -1

Football Accumulator Betting Tip for Tuesday's World Cup Qualifying By Alex Peace

Football Accumulator Betting Tip for Tuesday's World Cup Qualifying: "This Tuesday sees the final round of fixtures in this year’s World Cup Qualifying and we have an accumulator for it. There is a slight lack of value in a lot of matches so to compensate for this I’ve put together a 12/1 8-fold."
Accumulator Betting Tip:

Bosnia to beat Lithuania 1/3:

Bosnia have impressed everyone in qualifying and will rather finish first or second in this group. Bosnia have won seven matches in the group and lost just once. They are unbeaten on the road and have conceded just once, scoring eight and five in two of their away games. Lithuania haven’t had a bad qualifying with three wins and four defeats. Their wins however have come against the minnows of Liechenstien and Latvia. At home they have only lost once to Greece but against a strong Bosnia side who have it all to play for, they should lose.

Romania to beat Estonia 2/11:

Romania still have a great chance of claiming a play-off spot but will want a win to give them the best possible chance. They have only lost to Turkey and Holland in qualifying and have five wins in nine. Estonia have only managed to beat Andorra in qualifying and have lost three of four away. Justified short odds in this one as Romania should easily beat Estonia.

Serbia to beat Macedonia 2/5:

A damp squid from group A as neither of these sides can qualify. Serbia have struggled a bit picking up just three wins in nine qualifiers and losing four. They have been much better at home though, losing just once. Macedonia are bottom of a group with Wales in it. They have lost six matches in qualifying and lost three of their four away matches. It should be an easy night for Serbia and they should wrap up qualifying on a high.

Belgium to beat Wales 1/6:

 Belgium have romped through this group with eight wins in nine matches and are unbeaten. They are obviously unbeaten at home and have won three in a row there. Wales have  nine points with three wins and six defeats to their names in another disappointing attempt to qualify. They have lost three of four away games, only beating Scotland on the road. Against a magnificent Belgium side they should succumb easily.

Croatia to beat Scotland 13/10:

The only game that wanders out of odds on territory is this one. Scotland have struggled in qualifying and have won just twice. They have lost five games in this group and will be looking to put it behind them. Croatia have a play-off spot confirmed and will be hoping to take some momentum in to their crucial two leg affair. Scotland have not won at home in qualifying and have really struggled at Hampden. Croatia are unbeaten on the road in this group and will be hoping to finish off that way against a struggling Scotland.

France to beat Finland 1/5:

To a France side now who should have a play-off spot reserved but can push Spain for top spot. They have four wins in seven group matches only losing to Spain. At home they have won two of three matches and should do so again against a weak Finland side. Finland have won just twice in qualifying with far too many draws. Against a strong France side they should lose here.

England to beat Poland 2/9:

England should be safely through to Brazil but a win here will confirm it. They are unbeaten in this group with five wins and four draws. They have won three of four at home and won three in a row at Wembley. Poland just haven’t won enough in qualifying with just three wins in nine. They have only beaten San Marino away and against an England side needing a win to wrap things up they should lose.

Montenegro to beat Moldova 1/3:

Goal difference means even a win might not be enough for Montenegro to grab a play-off spot. However, they have lost just twice in qualifying and take on a side who have only beaten San Marino. On the road Moldova have lost three of four and should lose to a better Montenegro team.
